woman needs people skills

the registering clerk took forever to come to the desk then was rude and made it obvious we were disturbing her activities in the adjoining room. Parking was a nightmare.

Adequate for the purpose

Bedsheets and bathroom were clean, so that's a good start. But the dresser/TV console and little table had been so over-shellacked it constantly felt sticky no matter how many times we wiped it off. And the rug looks like it hasn't been replaced or cleaned since it first went in decades ago. On the other hand, it's incredibly convenient: it's right on Monterey, so it's a straight shot down to the Mission and downtown. We were in town the first weekend after students returned to Cal Poly (which we didn't know about when we booked the trip) so this was only 1 of 2 hotels that would book a single weekend night. I don't think I'd use it as a "base" hotel for an extended trip to the Central Coast, but as a 1- or 2-night place, it would be okay.

Stop on way to Northern CA

Room was clean and spacious. Flat screen TV was nice. Refrigerator and microwave allowed cooling of food that we had and reheating leftovers from the night before. The coffee maker made it nice in the morning. Gentleman who checked us in couldn't have been nicer. He also gave us a coupon for a free appetizer at the Apple Farm Inn which is just several hundred feet from the motel. Apple Farm food is great. Morning breakfast was typical continental but was sufficient to get us on the road quickly. We would definitely recommend this motel and plan on staying there again in September as we are passing through to northern CA.

Avoid Unfriendly Staff at this Fleabag Motel

When we arrived our friend's room had the door and windows open as if the staff was trying to air it out. Unfortunately this wasn't working because the room smelled horrible and there was food left in the refrigerator. Our friend requested a room change, but was told the hotel was sold out and they would "give her a can of air freshener." The next morning our friend discovered her room had no shower curtain. Upon checkout we mentioned to the manager that we noticed at least three rooms that had not been used that our friend could have been moved in to. We also mentioned the missing shower curtain. Instead of an apology we were asked, "What would you like us to do? Your friend should have told us about the shower curtain."
